Last month, we started a search to find a nonprofit partner in Seattle that could benefit from access to additional transporation options to better serve their constituents.
After an incredible response from the local non-profit community, we are happy to announce that New Beginnings has been awarded our first ever ReachFurther award. New Beginnings' mission is to empower survivors and mobilize community awareness and action to end domestic violence in Seattle.
In 2017, New Beginnings launched a mobile advocacy model, meeting survivors where they feel most safe and taking tools, resources and knowledge to them rather than requiring them to travel across town. While incredibly beneficial for the survivors, access to and costs of transportation for advocates has been a challenge.
By partnering with New Beginnings, ReachNow will provide carsharing and ridesharing services to remove these transportation barriers for both survivors and their advocates – helping to provide freedom of mobility and freedom from abuse.
Now, we need your help. Join us on December 14, 2017 for our first-ever Day of Giving. Bookmark your calendar and more details to come!Congratulations, New Beginnings and welcome to the ReachNow family!
From day one, ReachNow’s mission has been to create a better way for people to move seamlessly through their world and experience the people and places that matter most to them. With hundreds of BMW and MINI vehicles throughout Seattle, we offer on-demand transportation for those who want an easy, convenient way to get around town. Do you work for, support or know of an organization that could benefit from more access to transportation? If so, we need your help finding a partner to be the first recipient of our ReachFurther program.
